During our first dive, I got to thinking. What if I let Lizzy dive herself? Could I really let go of that? Does she need someone in there with her? What if she cries? What if she reaches around for me and I'm not there, how can I get to her. I was praying for us. Could she actually do this? Could I handle this?
I've no words. I'm sad......she doesn't need her momma in that chamber with her. I'm proud........she can do this. You know what? I'm proud of me too! We did it! What a big girl!
I want to include a picture of the men that rule the clinic. Yes, I said rule! They rock. They're the nicest guys with the warmest hearts! They're perfect for this! Lizzy reached out for Dr. Pete and he just scooped her up. Yea, all 77 pounds of her! She just giggled. I'm so glad that we don't have to say good-bye forever on Friday. We'll be doing monthly trips for treatment!

I went to Bi-lo across the street from the hotel this afternoon. I had to pick up a few things and I knew that I wouldn't be long. I put Lizzy in her stroller and grabbed a basket. After putting two items in the basket, I realized that this was going to be harder than I thought and I was tired from our walk in the 97 degree weather. We walked on the path under the trees! I realized something else. I needed help. If you know me, I don't ask for help. I walked up to the customer service counter and told them my dilemma. In seconds, I had a personal shopper!!!! All because I asked for help! This person walked behind me up and down the aisles for the next fifteen minutes. Can you believe that? It was busy so she took me to her register and then took the groceries to my van! Service! That just made my day.
***Moral of the story**** Ask for help when you need it!
My sweet sweet girl.
God Bless each of you! Happy Monday!
